Oh tiny little ones of Peshawar…

Oh tiny little ones of Peshawar,
My heart breaks today for you and yours.

I carry a tiny one inside me,
I pray for all the mothers who carried the tiny you.
I pray for all the fathers who played with the tiny you.
I pray He gives them strength when there is none.
I pray He gives them hope when there is little left.

Their tears will never cease,
Their pain will never end,
Their heart will never be healed.

Oh tiny little ones of Peshawar,
I pray you welcome your parents to Jannah,
I pray your intercession for them is accepted by Allah.
I pray you are blessed with the peace you never got in this world.

Oh tiny little ones of Peshawar,
I wish if only the person who pulled that trigger on you,
Had thought 9 second longer for the mother who carried you for 9 months.

Oh tiny littles ones of Peshawar,
I come from a warring country to yours,
But those lines which demarcated me and you,
They were just man made.
For my heart today is full of prayers for you, your family and your people.
No line can act as a barrier for my prayers and tears.

Oh tiny little ones of Peshawar,
Oh beautiful bright eyed children of Peshawar,
I am so sorry humanity failed you today.

Oh tiny little ones of Peshawar,
I am so sorry we live in a world where you had to endure this.

  1. Dear Shahara – what an amazing poem … the words and thoughts couldn’t have been expressed better … the sadness just is so appalling and so so so unnecessary … my heart goes out to all .. Hilary
